[awesome video alert] Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling "Episode 1: Arrival"

Well now. It's times like this where we look back on previous videos posted under the "Awesome Video Alert" banner and feel all kinds of guilty. I mean, anything we throw up here is awesome, no doubt, but then along comes this new clip by Manhattan-taking, Berlin-eyeing, spy-tracking, vertically-rocking Boston duo DO NOT FORSAKE ME OH MY DARLING. And we're all like, dayum.

The core of DNFMOMD's identity is inspired by the late-'60s British spy fiction television series "The Prisoner," and the six songs on new EP Questions Are A Burden To Others, released this week, continue the band's aim to sonically relate specifically to the show's 17 episodes (this EP gives us episodes 5, 6, 7, 8, 11 and 12).

But this clip for "Episode 1: Arrival," directed by Theodore Cormey of Lost Jockey Productions, it's just next-level insanity, replicating, scene-by-scene and shot-by-shot, the show's opening sequence, filmed at various locations around Massachusetts over 11 days of shooting and two years of planning. It's nothing short of jaw-dropping, and really, suddenly getting chased out of nowhere on the beach by a giant fucking orb is a metaphor we all can relate to.

When DNFMOMD plays Church on June 23 with Doomstar! and the Strange Boys, buy Michael J. Epstein and Sophia Cacciola a drink or twelve. Oh, and ask them, did they really get that Lotus 7 vehicle from a 76-year-old car enthusiast in Reading? Reading?!?!!?
